The film also contains contributions from Professor of Social Sciences Gerda Reith at Glasgow University,  and member of the university’s Gambling Research Group. Inverclyde MP Ronnie Cowan has a special interest in gambling harms and is vic-chair of the Westminster All Party Parliamentary Group on Gambling Related Harm. Also contributing is William Griffiths who managed Scotland Reducing Gambling Harm at the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland.

The film has received very positive responses from audiences regarding its powerful impact. You can read some of them here.

One of the most impactful things I have EVER seen.

We would like to see the film screened at community events in Glasgow where citizens can discuss the issues raised.

The film is also a very useful resource as  part of training frontline workers and raising awareness about gambling harm.

We have some suggestions about how the film could be used here and here. We’d be very happy to hear from you if you’d like to preview the film and consider using it in your community organisation or workplace.
